Explosion in central Russia

Earlier this morning outside the town of Orenburg in central Russia, there were a series of shell explosions near a military testing ground. Although the explosion occurred about 25 miles away from Orenburg, windows were smashed out of homes, which forced a couple of villages to evacuate.

The explosion caused a huge mushroom-like cloud to form. At this time, sources are saying that the detonated weapons did not contain nuclear material. Look at the video to see the huge mushroom cloud for yourself. Nobody was injured.
